Default Mets get Santana?

72 hours to negotiate a long term deal with Mets...

This should be interesting...

What do you think about, $120 mil. for 6 years? Or $100 mil for 5 years?

You can have him and his contract. I don't want it and I'm glad Boston is not getting him.

I can't say I blame you, I think the Spanks are still making payments to Kevin Brown...not to mention Pavano...

Santana and the Mets agreed Friday to a $137.5 million, six-year contract, a record for a pitcher and the last major step needed to complete the team's blockbuster trade with Minnesota.
I'm glad I'm not signing his paycheck...but I'll be happy to see him on the mound!

Congrats Mets fans! He is a fantastic pitcher and I think the Mets really needed him. If the Mets lost the division by 1 game last year, the picked up at least 5 games with this signing right here. This not only gives them quality starts every 5 days, but will rest the bullpen as well.

Right on Walt, Replace a washed up Glavine(13 wins last year & was a bum down the stretch) with Santana. The best pitcher in baseball. It has been a long time since the Mets have been able to snag a player the Yanks or anybody else for that matter wanted.... After the Giants kick the Pats arses tomorrow, this will be a perfect week!!!!

finally a premier free agent for the lowly mutts.

I think this one was a no-brainer.

Any pitcher of that caliber would demand a premium price. And the mutts were desperate, given their staff.

Bosux (oops sox ) may not have *needed* him, but other clubs do not have that luxury.
